with the new jersey governor chris christie. the two leaders literally offering shoulders to cry on and words of inspiration and support. >> we'll help you get it all together, all right? i promise. i promise. you're going to be okay. everybody is safe, right? that's the most important thing. we're going to get this whole thing done. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> well, governor romney is on his second official day back on the trail post-sandy. chivalry is dead. at his campaign stop in roanoke, virginia, just last hour, romney was in full attack mode. >> do you want for more years like the last four years? i mean, do you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? do you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> so this hour, we are awaiting a live update from new york city. mayor michael bloomberg on what has been a commuting nightmare in and around the country's biggest city. it's something the likes of which have not been seen since
city, president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie. after the two leaders surveyed the damage along the jersey shore, the president vowed he wouldn't tolerate red tape. >> i instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team. you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayor, governors, county officials, if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> during one of his stops, governor christie found more victims in utter despair. >> i need help. >> we're going to help you. >> everything is gone. >> i know. >> so many people in that situation. in new york, the desperate race to get america's biggest city back up and running continues. water is being pumped out of the subway system. officials in new york and connecticut say the subway and commuter rail lines will start returning today although on a limited basis. it is an amazing but erie sight. much of the skyline of lower manhattan remains dark as this city enters the fourth day of a massive power outage. the flooding crisis from sandy goes beyond the east coast. these are pictures
governor chris christie. >> it's been one of our priorities to give these communities hit hard by the flooding the accessibility to act. act first. this is one of those times that uses one of my favorite sayings, it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. all right? [applause] charles: all rise judge andrew napolitano is here. they were posing questions to governor christie. somebody tried to sort of hit him like are you saying ignore environmental things, you know, that kind of stuff. you know common sense christie saying do the right thing, let's save lives and be smart and forget about all these rules. >> it is an interesting statement he made and an interesting juxtaposition you just showed. you have governor christie on the right of the political spectrum -- spectrum. you have the president on the left of the political spectrum, they are both saying forget the red tape, do what you need to do to save lives. which is probably what most people would do. the press conference, which i watched, was in front of government officials. they were applauding him when he sai
can remember this was the last energy crisis. wouldn't you know that governor chris christie, he is a little younger, he wants to go and he is announcing the rationing of gasoline. and they might say, what is the big deal. look at these lines. well, these arvery long lines, just to get gasoline. the problem is they're out because they have no power and there is no way to access the gas. they might cut down by on an even distribution of this and for those of you, well, let's say, is new to you. for those of you that are in within a century, this is akin to a we did in the back luncheon last energy crisis. on and the crisis before that in 1973. that is why this is such a big deal. that is why this is so bad. that is why this is not some fleeting event. they are already making arrangements like this in one of the most population heavy states. new york will probably consider to do the same in short order. all of these utilities are down. power is coming back at a glacial pace. james o'neill says providing the help and the resources to get these utilities back online. is that correct?
chris christie says officials requested emergency supplies of gasoline and fuel from the federal government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming in from all over. exactly from 12 states. they are headed to new jersey to assist in repairs. the national guard is increasing its response to the storm. reinforcements were sent to new york and new jersey to double the recovery efforts. now, while people are picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, the presidential campaign is back in full swing. if you want to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument?
that's hypocritical. that someone else is new jersey governor chris christie. for rush to do that must mean that rush is very, very angry with what appears to have been a working relationship between the president and the governor of a stricken state. >> well, absolutely. rush posed an interesting question in the montage. can a man love another man? and i see just from our relationship, i love you, i think you love me. a man can love another man. and if a man can't love another man, then we have serious problems in america because there's lots of men we need to come together. it's not just political expediency here. these people are doing something together, working together in a very important bipartisan way. these people who have said the president can't work bipartisanly in a way that completely avoids and ignores the fact of obstruction, so, i mean, that just destroyed that idea. the president is working and taking care of the situation in a way that katrina was completely bungled and it's very interesting how the storm has arrived to show the president working with his thesis that
. listen to what mayor bloomberg said this week. listen to what chris christie said this week. obama governs from the center. you contrast that to everything dr. patterson was saying, how this guy has campaigned when he needed the social conservatives to get the primary -- to get the nomination, he catered to every single right wing wing nut policy position like he was running for the president of the john burch society. the idea he would not be a marionette is betrayed by the facts of the campaign. >> the wonderful character of willard mitt romney. julian, dana -- sorry, that's wrong, julian, michelle, cottle, and professor james peterson, thank you so much. and if you can't get enough, we have got a special election edition live from democracy plaza at 30 rock tomorrow, saturday night, at 7:00 p.m. so please do join us. next, if you can't keep them from the polls, keep them from casting their vote. stay with us. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink,
governor chris christie has stern words for anyone ignoring evacuation orders. >> if something looks like it's stupid to do, it is. >> reporter: a similar tone from new york mayor, michael bloomberg. >> you're not only putting yourself at risk but also the first responders who will have to assist you in the emergency. >> reporter: sandy is over 700 miles wide packing wind and rain that could last 36 hours. homeowners in its path spent sunday boarding up, laying sand bags, and gathering last-minute emergency supplies. >> we lucked out with irene and now i don't know. this may be worse. i don't know. >> reporter: the time to prepare now over. time to stay inside and hunker down. >> reporter: and an emergency official here in cape may, new jersey, said, quote, this is the worst case scenario. they are predicting recording flooding. the tide could rise up to 8 feet and power outages that could last up to two weeks. we're hearing about the power outage in cape may. i'm danielle leigh, back to you. >>> thank you so much for that report. we appreciate it. >>> just ahead, more on hurricane sandy
rescued from their flooded homes. president obama joined governor chris christie on a tour of the new jersey shore, where sandy made landfall monday evening. >> we are not going to tolerate red tape. we are not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule, essentially, on my team. you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes, whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> pelley: three days ago, this was a neighborhood of families. this evening, folks are returning to find all of their possessions in ashes. and a little while ago, we saw a man put everything he had in one baby stroller and push it away. breezy point is a community on the rockaway peninsula east of manhattan, and it is the bluest of blue-collar neighborhoods. many of the residents here are new york city firefighters or cops. let us show you what breezy point looked like before. rows of houses just a block or two from the beach. this is what the neighborhood looks like now. governor andrew cuomo walked the ground today and h
week and one day away. chris christie, warning people not to take this hurricane lightly. the worst of it is eight hours away. stay with us. >> everyone should be asking themselves if the trip they are thinking about making it necessary or if you feel as though you have made a huge mistake. if you have any doubt about whether it's necessary or not, please stay home. megyn: hurricane sandy helping construction of the new world trade center complex in lower manhattan. take a look at this scene at the southern tip of new york is a couple blocks from the freedom tower. new york governor andrew cuomo worried that storm surge from hurricane sandy could flood the area. a surge of four to 11 feet is expected. in fact, some forecasters are warning that new york city could see its highest storm surge in more than 100 years. we are told that all construction materials have been secured at the freedom tower, along with several grains. floors 88 and up posing a unique challenge because they are only surrounded by nothing. they have security, it could become airborne. maintenance will be availabl
have seen cheap -- one was with chris christie. the second part was today with the jobs numbers. connell: more jobs added than expected. you are right about that. thank you to both of you. >> thank you. dagen: we had back to staten island to get the very latest on the massive cleanup efforts and what in addition is being done to help all of those revenant. connell: people just absolutely devastated. the never ending gas lines all over. we have elizabeth macdonald live at one gas station. ♪ hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. >> i am nicole petallides live on the floor of the new york stock exchange where every 15 minutes we have stocks now. you can see the dow is down one third of 1% amidst the important jobs day. this is the head
system collapses then he'd gaet the blame. he's doing the right thing and i think it's correct for chris christie to thank him and say the president is being help of. i suspect every governor will tell you that they're paying attention. i don't think it helps him much. >> greta: what about friday when jobs report comes out? any impact two, three days out from tuesday? >> the problem for obama is any time the number gets better it turns out that is because people dropped out of the work force. and the last report was that this last quarter every new job unbalanced was a government job. i don't know of anyone who is confident about next year. i have seen small businesses out in missouri for todd akin. i don't see anyone out here saying i'm reved up. i think you could have a dramatic recovery if romney wins because there are a tremendous number of entrepreneurs who would like to do something if they had there was a sense of confidence. now if it goes up again, if it's 8.2 then, i think it's a big problem for obama. >> ohio. the ever important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chr
the president for the last day or two and the way in which chris christie has been very positive about him. that has an impact. the election will go out on tuesday will go out in the wash and be back where we were before the hurricane. i thought before the hurricane we were moving towards a 53-47 or better romney victim and republican controlled senate. when you see these waves start to build. they said romney was winning the early vote by about six points that enormous shock. obama has claimed all along they would win the early vote. so obama will be in big trouble despite being a day or two presidential giving out a lot of money and going around being concerned. >> sean: i just hope people compare and contrast, this is not the same president in benghazi. we don't 6 a picture of the situation when the president was flying off to vegas. i'm not saying this is photo op or the president doesn't care. i'm sure he does. you are are right. photo-ops giving away money does not erase four years of a bad economy. it does not erase of the lies told in relationship to what happened in benghazi. >> t
is appearing with governor chris christie who is one much his harshest critics and getting praise from him. that could only translate into good thinks for the president. melissa: brad, is this too little too late. >> too little too state. storm's devastation in very blue states like new jersey and new york which would go to obama anyway. the key battleground states decide the election, good news they weren't as devastated as blue states were. so the fact of the matter i don't think the storm will have much effect on the election. melissa: we'll leave it there. chris, see you later on in the show. we'll have fun with spare change. so don't go far. >>> here is our question of the day, will the government's response to the storm have an effect on your vote next week? i want to hear your. melissafrancisfox or on twitter at melissaafrancis. >>> coming up on "money", relief aid is pouring into the east coast but the u.s. is getting an offer from very unlikely source, iran. is it smoke and mirrors? we'll find out. we'll call them to see if it is real. >>> strong economic data today gives hope for
